The follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Run Fast. Eat Slow., Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. is a cookbook aimed at busy young athletes looking for nutritious recipes to fuel their lives.
Run Fast. Eat Slow. transformed lives of athletes across the country, showing them that healthy food could be both indulgent and incredibly nourishing. On their book tour, authors Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky listened to readers and fans and decided that they needed to bring their knowledge to those who needed it most: busy young athletes. The first book had a life-changing effect on the lives of high school and college runners, helping them overcome health issues related to undernourishment and develop healthy eating habits. Their second book takes the advice they gave in Run Fast. Eat Slow. one step further by providing the recipes to nourish and sustain athletes on the go.
While aimed at a younger audience, Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. will also appeal to anyone looking to cook nutritious recipes quickly: beginner cooks, busy families, moms with young children. The recipes are easy, approachable, and affordable. It will be organized not by category, but by time of day: morning pre-run snacks, post-run breakfasts, on-the-go lunches, 30-minutes-or-less dinner recipes, and sweet and savory snacks. Each and every recipe—from Shalane and Elyse’s signature Superhero muffins to protein-packed wraps, pizza bolognese, baked avocado, and macadamia macaroon energy bars—provides fuel and nourishment without sacrificing taste or time.
